In the situation you need a Fire Door for its intended purpose you want to be sure it can live up-to its expectations, that's why every single one of our doors is rigorously tested to ensure the quality of the Door is consistent across manufacturers and batches.
The general premise behind a FD Rating is that the bigger the number the better resistance is offered to heat and other high intensity elements. Most of our standard Fire Doors last for roughly 30 minutes which are assigned FD30 Ratings, but if you're looking to invest in a even more secure Fire Door we also offer doors capable of standing for upto 60 minutes with an assigned FD60 Rating. These Ratings are usually either part of the name or product details so you can check whilst you browse.
Thickness and Hardware
A lot of our available Fire Doors are thicker than your usual standard doors, so its important to take into account better hardware and spacing to be certain you'll have no issues with fitting. Suppliers such as Frelan, Carlisle Brass or Dale Hardware specialise in vast options of hardware so there is something to suit everyone's choice of Fire Door.
Fire Door Style
Part of what makes a Fire Door so resilient is the way it is designed. In most cases the Fire doors you'll find are all panelled or in some options solid; having glazed or unglazed sections drastically reduce the available resistance. But to help combat this we work with our suppliers to ensure the styles we can offer are close matches with their usual standard ranges so you can add to your home without ruining the style you already have.
Whilst we do our best to provide you with the most recent updated ranges at Leader Stores, it is possible that you have a slightly different preference to something you've seen or uncertainties to be queried in which case please contact our Sales Team who are happy to help with looking into or answering any questions you may have.
